What proof is there that Born's probability interpretation of the QM wavefunction is correct? Born published two papers in 1926 that supposedly shed light on this subject. Does anyone know where I can find english translated versions of these works?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Does anyone know of any accessible research papers that demonstrate proof of the probability interpretation?

I know that Heisenberg's uncertainty principle would indicate that probability is an important part of QM, but has anyone used it to show that Born's interpretation is correct?

Also, are there any research papers about how experimentation has shown Schrodinger's interpretation of the wavefunction is incorrect? He thought that it represented a continuous electric charge density distribution. According to Born, measurements using Geiger counters and wilson cloud chambers prove that Schrod's interpretation is clearly wrong. How can I learn about this? Do you know of any papers on the subject?
